September 16, 2020: SpiceJet has launched 14 new cargo flights to and from North Eastern Indian states of Assam, Manipur, Mizoram, Nagaland and Tripura using its Bombardier Q400 freighters.

SpiceJet is the first Indian carrier to introduce dedicated cargo flights for North-Eastern India. The dedicated cargo flights will help transport fresh fruits, vegetables, flowers, perishables, fish seeds, fresh fish, pharmaceuticals, medical equipment, express cargo and other general cargo. Besides improving logistics and connectivity, the new freighter service will boost the growth of trade in the North Eastern markets and help micro, small & medium enterprises.

The airline will operate daily cargo flights on Kolkata-Guwahati, Guwahati-Kolkata, Kolkata-Imphal and Imphal-Kolkata sectors. SpiceJet has also introduced cargo flights between Kolkata and Guwahati via Aizawl and Dimapur which will operate twice-a-week. The airline will also operate cargo flights on the Kolkata-Agartala and Agartala-Guwahati sectors thrice-a-week and twice-a-week on Kolkata-Silchar and Silchar-Guwahati routes.

SpiceJet connects Guwahati with key cities across the country including Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Kolkata, Chennai, Patna, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Amritsar and has been transporting cargo both to and from the capital of Assam using the belly space of its passenger aircraft.

Sarbananda Sonowal, chief minister, Assam, said, “Farmers from the region can now transport their fresh farm produce across the country and internationally also. I would urge local businesses, traders, entrepreneurs to make use of this opportunity that provides us access to markets not only within India but across the globe. SpiceJet dedicating a part of its fleet to improving connectivity and strengthening the supply chain in Assam and North East is a welcome step that will immensely help and boost local business, trade, micro, small & medium enterprises and farmers.”

Ajay Singh, chairman & managing director, SpiceJet said, “While being one of the most culturally and geographically rich regions in India known for their natural produce, consumables and other essential products, the North East still suffers from a lack of connectivity and it has always been a dream to help better integrate this wonderful part of India with the rest of our country. Our dedicated cargo service will provide the quickest access to farmers and businesses in the North East to transport their goods to the rest of the country while at the same time facilitating easy transportation of essential cargo to the region.”
